For this part of the Christmas season, we offer part of a translation of one the hymns of Ephrem the Syrian, on the Epiphany: ‘The heavens He has renewed, for that fools worshipped all the luminaries: — He has renewed the earth, for that in Adam it was wasted. — the All-Sufficing has restored bodies with souls. … The star of light shed its rays among them that were in darkness — and guided them as though they were blind — so that they came and met the great Light: — they gave offerings and received life and adored and departed. … The Magi cry out in their gifts; — the barren cry out with their children — the star of light, lo! It cries out in the air, Behold the Son of the King!

May your day be filled with light, and may God bless you.
